Can You Help?

Update 12/19:  Thank you for helping her numbers jump, she's so happy.  We are still 20 votes behind the leader though so if you haven't voted yet, please do - we'd appreciate it greatly!

This is a quick personal call for help and in the light of all that is happening in the world right now, it is a simple request but admittedly, a little bit of selfish one.  If you can look past that, your help would mean a lot to my family and especially my daughters.


Here's the deal, my twin girls, like most kids their age need braces.  For various reasons, expense
being one of them, we've put it off for a few years now.  We can't much longer as they've reached that age that the baby teeth are falling out and their permanent teeth are moving in.  Luckily Cambree has a chance to win free braces. (it's a real deal, my friend's son won them last year)

Here's where you can help.  She's getting creamed in the contest, she checks her votes every day but the numbers just aren't climbing for her.

If you have a Facebook account and wouldn't mind - would you vote for her in an ugly sweater contest?  Your vote does matter and would help a ton.


Funny thing, some people have said they like her sweater - I think if they could see it in real life they wouldn't, it's pretty bad.  It has beads and shiny ribbon, and fake leather and tinsel -eeek!  Anyway, if you want to support her, which would be awesome, here's what you do:


2- go to the top right corner where it says "win braces" and click there.

3 - Like the page and then click to view entries

4- vote for Cambree

It's pretty simple and really would mean a great deal to our family, plus wouldn't it be a nice surprise for her to see her numbers climbing?!  

Thank you so much!

My youngest will be getting her braces off in another month or two. She's our second to need braces so I completely understand the expense of it. Luckily our dental insurance paid $1000 of my daughter's, but we had to pay out of pocket for the rest of her treatment and we paid 100% for my son's treatment. We're talking about $10,000 total. Ouch! (luckily it was spread out over several years) Anyway, I just voted. It looks like she's way ahead of the others. Good luck!

She's in 1st place right now with 180 votes. I had all 4 of my kids in braces at the same time! Good luck.

I have twins too (7 year old boys) and one of them needs braces this year too! You see, his nickname is Jet too so I felt like I had to vote for you...parallel lives and all ;)

Good luck!

I follow your blog from Sydney, Austalia. My middle boy has braces, so I feel your pain that your twins need them too. I have posted the competition on my FB page too. Kind regards, Julie B
